Range Warming Drawer for Storage?

I am looking at a GE Profile range that has a warming drawer below the oven. I was wondering if anyone has this setup and if the drawer can be used for pan storage. Is there a seperate control for the warming drawer to turn it on and off? Will splatters from the oven drip into the warming drawer?

My husband and I are looking to buy an apartment and this is the range that comes with it. I am trying to figure out if I'll have enough storage space for all my kitchen stuff.

  1. We have one with a warming drawer. Yes, there is a separate control for High, Low and off. Splatters from the oven will not drip into the warming drawer. That being said, I don't use it for storage. It would be a pain to remove the storage every time I wanted to use the warming drawer.

    1. I have a warming drawer on my range. It has separate heat controls. Several large roasting pans live there most of the time.

      I only use the warming drawer when I'm making more dishes than I can finish at the same time or when there's a pot luck and folks bring stuff over that needs to be kept hot.

      1. It's not quite your topic, but there's a very good thread called WAR(ming drawer); what is it good for? you should check out

          Thanks, I did check it out and sounds like warming drawers can be really useful. I'm just not sure how often I'd use mine, and I have soooo many pans!!

          Thanks everyone!
